Hollander Gains AAFA Certification for Down Products
May 11, 2011,
BOCA RATON, Fla.-The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America has certified the down products of Hollander Home Fashions as asthma- and allergy-friendly, according to a Hollander statement.
Among Hollander's products that are covered by this certification are down- and feather- filled comforters, bed pillows and blankets. The statement said allergists had been recommending bedding products with synthetic or silk fills, which offered less exposure to allergens including mites and proteins that were found in natural fills. Advances in down and feather processing, along with allergen-barrier fabrics, have made these products asthma- and allergen-friendlier, Hollander said.
